Skip to comments.Breaking up is hard to do (Even dumber than the last one)

Since the presidential election, more than 750,000 people from all 50 states have signed petitions on the White House website saying they want their state to secede from the union.
This is either the start of the second Civil War or the biggest case of sour grapes ever.
Not that I blame people. When George W. Bush won a second term, I wanted to abandon the country on grounds that I couldn't live among people who would willingly re-elect a guy who: A) Couldn't pronounce the word "nuclear;" B) Practiced "strategery;" and C) Went after Saddam Hussein when Osama bin Laden is the guy we wanted. But I didn't leave because as a grownup I understood that you can't run from your problems. Plus my passport was expired.
So tempting as it is, I'm not about to criticize people who want their state to secede just because an African-American liberal got re-elected. If their conscience is OK with it, so be it. Yeehaw.
Besides, we're so politically divided these days, breaking up into two nations might be a good thing. I would suggest, though, that we do it on left and right, north and south basis since that didn't work out so well last time.
I propose that righties can take the right half of the country, from the Mississippi River east, and form the nation of Conservistan, led by President Rush Limbaugh and Minister of Propaganda Karl Rove. While lefties can take the western half and call it Liberaltopia, led by President Hillary Clinton and Minister of Cool Dudeness Bruce Springsteen.
Think how nice and peaceful elections would be. No more yelling, no more ads. Just modest disagreements among people who more or less share the same philosophy...

dividing the country by Mississippi is stupid.
Can you see DUmmies trying to raise wheat and corn?
Not really. They probably think that bread grows on trees.
They’d get the undocumented workers to do it.
The supposed time traveler, John Titor, said by 2036 the USA would be divided up into five regions.
Who is this and why is he allowed to live among us?

How old are you Andy - six? Or are you the village idiot?
Go back, learn some American history (if there are still objective books to be found), study the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, then compare that with what’s gone on over the past four years. I mean what’s really gone on, not what the alphabet channels ‘report’.
Then submit a revised final draft of this essay for publication.
He thinks Motown is a bonus?
Breadfruit doesn’t grow anywhere around here I think
I once had my own utopian government idea....
He’s unhappy with a guy who can’t spell “nuclear” but is ok with a guy who hates America.
How about we split it up with liberals getting all the inner part of the big cities, and the conservatives getting the rest of the country?
I recall a so called nuclear engineer named Jimmy Carter who said nucular in an even more pronounced manner than Bush did. I have never heard a lib criticize him.
“Who is this and why is he allowed to live among us?”
They give his accomplishments at the end of the article...
“He graduated from Escanaba Area High School in 1979.”
I went to high school for 5 years, and needed another 2 months at a program in another state for adults to finally finish and earn my diploma. I’m pretty sure I have more common sense and intelligence than that guy.
Plus, I wrote that comment after some leftover wine from eat-till-you-explode day. (don’t usually care much for wine, prefer Jack Daniel’s)
You are on, pal...
Keep to your lib selves and we’ll go on with freedom, self-determination, responsibility, constitutional principles, true religious freedom, etc...
We will erect our “fence” to maintain border security....but it will have a huge platform on our side with popcorn dispensers and big *yeehaw* recliners so we can all watch the show on your side....
In my dreams.....
And who thinks we have 57 states, Austrians speak Austrian, Hawaii is part of Asia, “God Save the Queen” is background music and that we have Navy corpsemen....cripes, go down THAT road, genius!
